The Czech Republic in the Eurovision Song Contest
The Czech Republic debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 with the song “Malá Duma” by Kálas, coming last in the semifinal with 1 point. They’ve competed a total of 8 times in the contest, first qualifying for the final in 2016 with “I Stand” by Gabriela Gunčíková, finishing 25th.
Things also improved once the Czech Republic introduced their online national final Eurovision Song CZ. Mikolas Josef took the country to the top six in 2018, while Lake Malawi secured a solid eleventh place finish in 2019.
With Benny Cristo now winning the third edition of ESCZ, no doubt they’ll be aiming to continue their recent success.
